No change in condition of gravely injured Alberta Mountie

Const. David Matthew Wynn suffered a gunshot wound to the head Sunday morning during an investigation north of Edmonton

ST. ALBERT, Alta. – RCMP say the condition of an Alberta officer who suffered a gunshot wound to the head during an investigation north of Edmonton remained unchanged overnight.

Const. David Matthew Wynn, a 42-year-old father of three, is listed in grave condition.

Asst. Commissioner Marianne Ryan, who is in charge of the RCMP in Alberta, told a news conference Sunday evening that Wynn had not regained consciousness more than a day after the shooting and that he is not expected to survive.

Wynn and an auxiliary officer, Const. Derek Walter Bond, who is 49, were checking a suspicious vehicle at a casino in St. Albert when they were shot early Saturday morning.

Bond was wounded in the right arm and torso and was in serious but stable condition when he was taken to hospital, but he was released later in the day.

Shawn Maxwell Rehn, 34, the man identified by police as the suspected shooter, was found dead in a home not far from the casino.
